Hello, I’m Andrew Ketchum, and I have a passion for history. I have been to many historical sites such as Pearl Harbor and Gettysburg. I find that the study of the past is crucial so as to avoid major mistakes from occurring in the future as history often repeats itself. As for my contributions to society, I spent a week in Providence, Rhode Island with my Church Youth Group doing service work for non-profit organizations such as Food Share, the Salvation Army, and many others. Just before that I had spent an entire year working on my Eagle Project. I collected items and sent them in care packages to the troops in Afghanistan. My initial goal for the project was 1,000 items and ended up collecting over 3,000 items.
